    Community Virtual Reality for First Year Students
    1:00PM - 2:00PM / https://fiu.zoom.us/j/96695845806

    Imagine being just minutes away from becoming completely submerged underwater and the only way to overcome it is to build shelters to rise above the water. This is the virtual simulation COMMUNITY participants will face.

    COMMUNITY takes place under 18” of water. Using virtual reality headsets and wearable backpacks, provided by HP (Hewlett Packard), first-year experience students will tap into the COMMUNITY landscape and work in groups of two to four to build paths, structures and shelters out of colored blocks to rise above the water within a limited amount of time. Each block, when moved, plays a musical note, so students have the option of creating music with the build of their shelters. COMMUNITY allows students to perform specific tasks in an engaging and collaborative format that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to perform. Students are literally immersed in the course content and work with their peers to complete a common goal in a completely simulated environment. FIU’s First-Year Experience course, designed to teach students life skills and prepare them for professional success, is providing learners with a new collaboration opportunity in virtual reality.

    COMMUNITY is a virtual reality-based experience produced in collaboration with the College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts, the College of Engineering & Computing and FIU’s Academic and Career Success. Currently, it’s being developed as a voluntary part of the First-Year Experience curriculum for all incoming students in an effort to promote the four “C’s”: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

    Panther Camp
    4:00PM - 9:00PM

    Panther Camp is a traditions-based extended orientation program and our mission is to provide incoming students with the opportunity to transition to FIU in an exciting and engaging manner. The program delves deep into how students can decide who they want to be, what they want to do, and all the ways in which to do so during their time at FIU.

    Based on the escalating coronavirus pandemic, FIU’s summer courses are fully remote. Therefore, we will still make sure incoming students have the chance to experience the magic of Panther Camp. This summer we will be exploring a new version of our Panther Camp program, Panther Camp Online. As a program, we want to continue to instill Panther Pride to all incoming students and assist in their transition to the college experience. This version of Panther Camp will continue to focus on creating an experience dedicated on building relationships with other FIU students, fostering school spirit, and cultivating future student leaders! The Panther Camp Online sessions will be a day and a half program and more details about our sessions will be updated on our website, go.fiu.edu/pcamp.
